The National Black Art Festival provides a platform that celebrates and honors the African-American community for its contributions to art, dance, music, and film. For 35 years, Fulton County has lead the charge to educate and entertain those representing and supporting art and artists in the Black community.
On Oct. 7, the NBAF held its 2023 gala and artist showcase, highlighting artistic excellence through those 35 years with this year’s event theme, Mahogany. NBAF executive director Stephanie Owens and artistic director Oronike Odeleye were major contributors to putting the experience together and spoke with rolling out during the event.
